This is with the 240.


This is without. I'm thinking that it looks better without. It looks less crowded in there...


Also, does anyone have any experience removing the label off of the AX1200i? I want to flip it around, it's really bugging me that it's upside down.

I have used a heat gun to get stickers like that6 off. Most of the time corsair uses a metal kind of sticker and I have used a heat gun and it gets most of the stiky off and most of the time can restick it. Some times you might have to use a little bit of super glue. But hope that helps you out.

Thanks robert.

I'm going to try that this weekend. I'll try it on the side you can't see first wink.gif

Time for another update! I finally was able to complete my loop and do some leak testing. After 24 hours and no leaks, she is ready to be hooked up to power. I'm still waiting on some sleeving so I just connected the stock wires from my AX1200i to see what kind of temps I was getting.

I also played around with a little overclocking (I have no idea what I'm doing!). It seems I was only able to get my 4770k to 4.4 stable @ 1.252v and 70C (26C ambient). I didn't want to push any further than 70C. Are these good numbers for the amount of cooling I have? Also, I was running my D5 pump at 90% and my fans at 50%.

Here are some photos I took before and after the leak test.











I'll really have to read up on OC'ing my Haswell. But it seems I may have a crap batch.

Looking great smile.gif I see you are using the hardlines. Are those the BT fittings you are using?

Thanks! I was going to go with flex tubing at first, but I wanted to give it a try with acrylic. Maybe on my next build I'll actually try bending it. biggrin.gif

Hey everyone!

Just wanted to put up a small update and let you all know I'm still working on the build. Right now I'm just doing some sleeving in my spare time. I'm almost done with most of the PSU wires, that 24 pin is a b****!

I also wanted to add this photo.



I've decided to go SLI since I plan on buying the ROG Switft monitor when it comes out. I'm hoping 2 780's will be able to handle it! The only problem I had was finding the same water block that I have on my current 780. It looks like EK stopped production an that particular water block and it was sold out everywhere in the US. I ended up finding one at Specialtech in UK. I'm glad I found it because my OCD would not let me get 2 different water blocks.

I also decided to scrap the mechanical hard drive and add 2 more 512GB SSD's. This should be more than enough storage for me. Everything else can be put on my NAS.
